Essential Films Lists

Good Movies You’ve Never Seen have come up with a list of the 25 best movies “you’ve never seen“.

Well, I have seen them but there are some gems on it I would definitely recommend:

Heavenly Creatures (1994): An early example of Peter Jackson‘s skill as a director as well as Kate Winslet‘s ability as an actress.

End of the Century: The Story of the Ramones (2003): A terrific documentary about the US punk band.

Breakdown (1998): Very under-rated thriller starring Kurt Russell and directed by Jonathan Mostow (who would go on to direct U-571 and Terminator 3).

Grace of My Heart (1996): A beautiful love letter to the singer songwriters of the 60s starring Illeana Douglas as a Carole King-like singer.

The Hidden (1987): Trashy but smarter than average sci-fi thriller about an alien that takes over humans, leaving a trail of havoc in its wake.

Igby Goes Down (2002): A nicely observed comedy drama starring Kieran Culkin as a disaffected young man as a modern day Holden Caulfield.

And my favourite:

Chopper (2000): Eric Bana gave one of the best performances of the last decade with his mesmerising portrayal of Mark Brandon “Chopper” Read – an Australian criminal who became an unlikely media celebrity.
